Eliminate Unwanted Fat - Liposuction in NJ

POSTED ON MONDAY, AUGUST 01, 2022 AT 10:03 AM  by Dr. Mokhtar Asaadi

Many patients struggle with stubborn fat that is resistant to routine diet and exercise. Liposuction is one of the most commonly performed cosmetic procedures because of its ability to precisely target and remove unwanted pockets of fat.

There are a variety of liposuction techniques available and Dr. Asaadi will help you decide what’s right for you based on your desired results.

Lipo is often paired with other body contouring techniques to create beautifully-contoured results.

Tumescent Liposuction

Tumescent liposuction can be used to treat most body parts, including the stomach, hips, buttocks, thighs, calves, back, and more.

During the procedure, a specialized numbing solution is injected into the treatment area(s). A cannula is then inserted through a small incision to break up fat cells and gently suction them from the body.

Tumescent liposuction minimizes bruising and swelling post-procedure.


Super-Wet Liposuction                               

During super-wet liposuction, a small amount of anesthetic solution is injected into the treatment area(s), resulting in an overall shorter procedure. Following this preparation, a small cannula is inserted to perform the fat removal. Super-wet liposuction offers patients enhanced contours for a slimmer-looking figure.

VASER Liposuction

VASER liposuction utilizes ultrasound technology to break up and remove unwanted fat cells and uses either general or local anesthesia. During this liposuction procedure, a probe is inserted under the skin through a tiny incision to deliver ultrasound energy to the targeted areas.

VASER liposuction also exposes the underlying layers of the skin to heat, promoting collagen production, and tightening the skin for the most sculpted and youthful-looking results.

What to Expect Before Liposuction

If you’re considering undergoing liposuction in NJ, Dr. Asaadi will meet with you to discuss your goals and confirm that you’re an ideal candidate for the procedure. 

Following your consultation, you will receive specialized pre-care instructions to prepare for your liposuction.

What to Expect After Liposuction

Following lipo, you may experience mild bruising and swelling. Some patients may require a small drainage tube to aid in the healing process, but this may be removed within the first few weeks.

Healing times will vary by patient. However, most are able to return to work or their daily routines 1-2 weeks following their liposuction procedure. Patients should take this time to rest and avoid any strenuous activities.
